Missed call from potential employer?

What to do if you missed a call from an employer.

Missed a call from an employerQ: Crystal
I just had a pre-employment assessment test on Monday, and late in the afternoon yesterday, someone from the company called me and I missed it. By the time I realized, it was too late in the evening. I called again this morning and left a message because they were busy/out of the office. If they don’t call me back, when is it appropriate to give them a call again? Later in the afternoon today, or tomorrow morning perhaps? What happens if they are not in the office later, should I leave a message again or not? I don’t want to pester them too much…

Did the person leave their name? If so,  call through the company switchboard, employees tend to take calls that are transferred internally

Things to remember:
There may be a company operator. If that person asks the nature of your call, say you are returning an urgent call from X regarding your employment status.

Once you get the person on the phone and have said Hello X add:  Sorry I missed your call yesterday, I am very interested in the job so I am very pleased I am able to reach you.

On your next call please say (slowly) your email address if you have one, thus giving them another option to reach you.

Lastly go to the company’s Contact Us page on their web site, sent the person an email, state in the email,  that the email is for X manager. Tech support will forward it and they will read an email tech support.

A good rule of thumb is call around 4:20 – 5:00PM many managers are likely at their desk tiding up for end of day

Continued success in you job search…
